Black gunship

Post by Darth Yoda on Sat Nov 29, 2008 3:00 am

Well, I am currently making a black gunship. (It may look a bit off from the regular sets but that's what I want. Wink )
I am wondering what the secondary color should be, and if it should carry some kind of vehicle. (not an at-ate)
Pics will be up soon! Smile

Yeah... don't use regular blue I already did that... Razz

Maybe Dark Blue, thought that is pretty hard to obtain in high quantity....

For a vehicle I think maybe a small speeder or possibly (if it's big enough) a fighter of some sort... (that is if this gunship is airtight)

Sounds like a great project! Can't wait to see the end result!!

Okay, I got pretty far today. I just need to make the wings, guns, and speeder to fit inside. The other color will be dark blue... Smile (I did get the hyperspace ring.) Wink

Yay! All my ideas! Razz

And yeah, that set is good for dark blue, as is the Tri-droid and that Agents set...

Can't wait! Your MOCs are always awesome!!

How about dark grey, with maybe some small dark blue detailing. That will give it a real stealthy look.

And you should make it a LAAT/v. They carried speeders and stuff. Or maybe like a LAAT/c but with a cargo pod.

You could then put some stealt troops in it. The LAAT comes in and drops the pod. Quick deployment = minimal detection.

That's what I'd like to see, but ofcourse it's your MOC, so.

Greets, Commander Catsie.

I have all of those sets... Razz

Catsie, there won't be a pod that gets dropped or anything like that, just speeders sorry. Sad I will think about the dark gray though... Wink

If you have the Jedi Starfighter with Hyperspace Ring, you have a big dark blue source right there.

I would go with Red or Green though.

Hmmm.....

Not your best work... too blocky and not enough slops IMHO.

Also, those windshields always look really bad when it comes to gunships.....

A black gunship is going to be hard to make NOT look Imperial. I suggest having your secondary color be white. Just have strips of white running down the side of the ship. What I've got pictured is hard to describe but it would look something along the lines of Venom from Spiderman which would be amazing if done right.

I think, unless you have a lot of trans red, you should make the secondary color white, particurally in the nose of the gunship to replace the green.

I think CC is referring to the original set, the "nose" with the guns is part lime green...

You guys do know that I built this from scratch, and didn't even look at a reference pic right? Wink

I know that....

It's always great to build from scratch without reference... it lets you used your preconceived notions when building.
That way you keep all the elements of what you want to build!
